A blend of 80% Aglianico and 20% Piedirosso, the Villa Matilde 2016 Falerno del Massico Avallone is a bright and punchy wine with lots of spicy white pepper and licorice that I identify with many of the indigenous grapes of Italy. The wine offers plenty of wild berry and cassis fruit as well. This is a tight and tonic mid-weight red to pair with a platter of good, old cacio e pepe.

I love the label design of the Villa Matilde 2019 Greco di Tufo Avallone Tenuta Pietrafusa Daltavilla, which shows a proud-looking Italian she-wolf etched onto white paper. The sly and intelligent-looking wolf acts as a guardian to the softly textured white wine on the inside of this bottle. This is a pretty, lean to mid-weight wine that reveals ripe pear, peach, nectarine and toasted almond. For a fleeting moment, I picked up a hint of spicy white licorice as well.

This light to mid-weight red (not a description used very often for Aglianico) delivers engaging hints of tar alongside fine tannins. The focus here is definitely on the minerals, not the fruit. Though a lighter style of wine, it is not fleeting. Indeed, it has a real presence. Uplifting freshness accompanies its lovely austerity.

This a broad shouldered red, delivering what you’d expect from Aglianico — tar and minerals and power. And tannins, too. But there’s underlying voluptuous cherry-like fruit to it, creating a lovely ying/yang of fruit and savory minerality. Balanced and fresh because of the ever-present enlivening acidity, it finishes with a haunting touch of bitterness.

The 2016 Villa Matilde Aglianico Rocca dei Leoni Aglianico is a deep violet in the glass. Straight from the bottle the aromas are expressive. Crushed berry, wild flowers, spices and lavender. On the palate, this 100% Aglianico is vibrant and mouthwatering. Wild red berries are tantalizing. As a result of the stainless vinification, the flavors are pristine. Dusty minerals, fresh herbs and tobacco add complexity. I love this.
